Lichenostomus frenatus

The bridled honeyeater is endemic to our region.  It is named after the distinctive yellow bridle that goes across the top of the bill and to behind the eye.  The eyes are a lovely shade of blue/grey.

They are attracted to the nectar of flowering trees, but will also seek insects and fruit.

This honeyeater is a regular visitor to the cottages.
